Hasner Drops Toilet Ad Against Frankel

"Frankel spent over $13,000 in taxpayer money on a marble shower in a private bathroom with her own toilet," the woman continues. "What a waste. All that money right down the drain for her own person use." Then the ad cuts to a close-up of a hand flushing a toilet. "When you gotta go, ya gotta go," the woman then says, after it's revealed she's sitting on a toilet. "But that's just ridiculous." Toilet paper, a magazine, and a can of air freshener can be seen behind her. Ironically, a previous Hasner ad featured him speaking straight to the camera and declaring, "If you like name calling or slick political ads, then flip the channel. But if you're looking for someone who thinks both parties got us in this mess, then hear me out." It is not clear how much is being spent to air this latest ad. Frankel, the former mayor of West Palm Beach, is considered to have the edge in a Democratic-leaning district against Hasner, a former majority leader in the Florida House. The Cook Political Report rates the seat as "likely Democratic."
